Ti West’s The House of the Devil (review here) is one of those movies that really has to be seen to be appreciated. It’s a love letter to all the Seventies and Eighties Satan worshiping flicks those of us in our thirties and forties grew up loving, and holy cow does it look and feel completely authentic. Seriously, if you didn’t know this was new, it could easily pass for an old classic. Need an example? How about a new clip?
House of the Devil is a satanic thriller set in the 1980’s starring Jocelin Donahue, indie ingénue Greta Gerwig, Tom Noonan, Mary Woronov, AJ Bowen, and Dee Wallace-Stone.
Sam (Donahue) is a pretty college sophomore, so desperate to earn some cash for a deposit on an apartment that she accepts a babysitting job even after she finds out there is no baby. Mr. and Mrs. Ulman (Noonan and Woronov) are the older couple who lure Sam out to their creaky Victorian mansion deep in the woods, just in time for a total lunar eclipse. Megan (Gerwig) is Sam’s best friend, who gives her a ride out to the house and reluctantly leaves her there despite suspecting that something is amiss. Victor (Bowen) at first seems like just a creepy guy lurking around the house but quickly makes it clear that Sam will end this night in a bloody fight for her life…
